    So, the good news is my new 2x7 scope looks thru/past my MSR carbine front A2 fixed sight. Bad news is my low budget clunky rear flip up sits just a skosh too far forward to mount on the farthest back station and clear rear of scope.
    I don't want to go with higher rings because I am really digging my Aero Ultralight scope mount.

    Any recommendations for low profile rear flip up BUIS? The Cheap UTG:( doesn't. Did I say I built this during the post SH panic a part at a time?

    So I need one that mounts 3/4 inch or less total height from top of rail. Recommendations oh wise AR jedis?

    Thanks, I have looked at lots of different BUIS over the past couple of years but stowed height is not always obvious. Mea Culpa and why reinvent the wheel....

    Although I did consider a grinder!:rolleyes:

    I'm up for a pair of offset sights to compliment underneath my leupy 2x7 sitting in a GGG. I considered the Magpul Pro set

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion. The wisest of men seek knowledge continually. To paraphrase Lincoln you can't please all the people all the time. And recoil web was a site I was not really familiar with. They have purity pitchers, too! Thanks!

    Since my BCM HBAR upper has a fixed front I am going with Ruger's rear flip up.
